OK I did pressure wash the wood and have HAND sanded about half of the gunwale surfaces. Looking good and no wood needs replacing. Certainly a labor of love. I can just see from the lines of this boat that it will paddle wonderfully. Kinda like a longer Malecite with a rounded bottom instead of the shallow-V. I had a Malecite and it was the sweetest paddling tandem I have owned,...that is,until NOW! I already gave the finish a good wax/polish and it looks virtually perfect. It has just a couple little scrathes from the original owner during storage and stowage! Pictures coming soon,..although it looks exactly like FATELMO's Columbia. Medium blue with a orange/amber interior color!
